I Never Expected To Reach The Final- Andy Murray

Britain's world No 2 Andy Murray said he was extremely proud after he reached the French Open final for the first time on Friday. Murray, who stalled in the semi-finals three times previously, beat defending champion Stan Wawrinka 6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2 on Court Philippe Chatrier.

The impressive victory helped him become the first British player to reach the final at Roland Garros since Bunny Austin in 1937 and on Sunday he will try to become the first British winner of the tournament since Fred Perry in 1935.

The 29years old said with his voice cracking “I knew if I was going to win, I was going to have to play one of my best clay-court matches. Stan has been unbelievable the last two years. I've played one of my best matches today and I'm looking forward to the final. I'm extremely proud. I never expected to reach the final here. I'd always struggled on the clay. I hope I can put on a good match for all of the crowd on Sunday. To play at that level in the semis of the French Open is very pleasing. To play the way that I did today after a tough start to the tournament, I was just really, really happy with that
